Roll out the dough into a thick disc of approx 7” diameter. The rolled out dough should be atleast 2” thick. With a sharp knife cut the dough into strips and repeat it again on the other side to form diamond shaped pieces.
Heat the oil for frying on a medium flame. When hot, fry the diamond shaped dough pieces. Fry on both sides till they are golden brown in colour.
